Information Session: Yes - The information session was pretty average. They talked a lot about the financial aid and other aspects of the college similar to the other Ivy Leagues schools.
Campus Tour: Yes - I took a tour of the campus and loved it! It is so cool to walk from the hustle and bustle of NYC straight into a beautiful green campus with lots of space!
Overnight Visit: Yes - I stayed overnight with two Sophomores who live in Furnald(sp?) Hall. They showed me a great time and it was really cool to see what it was like for actual Columbia students.
Classroom Visit: Yes - My host had a class at Barnard which was nice because the girl to guy ratio was 8:1. The class was informative but hard to follow because it was about Chinese History and I didn't know much about
